Paperback
Book Printing

UK’s best price and quality

Light. Robust. Unputdownable. Paperback books, bound to last.

Easy to pick up. Hard to put down. Paperback books are made to be read. But they’re also often tossed into suitcases, shoved into pockets, and enjoyed on trains, planes, and sunloungers. It’s important that they maintain their integrity, so that their stories can be told.

Choose from our range of binding options (perfect bound or stapled), paper types and weights, and trim sizes to make sure your epic sci-fi tale or windswept romance novel stays in one piece.

I found the uploading feature quite tricky but got there in the end. The team were very helpful and the end product came out so well, I’m really happy and will definitely use Mixam again! Thank you!

Mixam were so clear in their communications, so helpful with their customer service, and so swift in their delivery. At no point was I unsure about their ability to print my zine the way I wanted; their website and online tools were the best I've used for self-publication, and I will definitely be printing again with Mixam soon!

Very please with the whole process. Immediate phone support to explain what to do. Such an easy intuitive web site to help choose which paper and card to use (receiving actual samples really helped me as a beginner). Telephone help uploading and arranging the material. Fast print and a really good price.

First class service and quality! Had a small problem with the online business card template, but this was very quickly resolved and two days later my order arrived and I am extremely happy. Quality was top notch, much better than the previous (and very well known!) online company that I used to use, and better still, Mixam were about 40% cheaper. I will definitely be using this company again.

Fantastic company, super helpful. I ordered some magazines and they were of amazing quality. I had issues making them in photoshop, the customer service was second to none. I have now gone back to order some posters, again the service is amazing, so quick to reply to my questions. Thank you Mixam.

This is the first time that I've used Mixam and I am very pleased with the results. The template makes it easy to upload and arrange photos in order and I the results were exactly what I expected. The printing is excellent and the paper quality is also what I expected. I am now working on another Zine, which will be larger than the first and on higher quality paper. I am currently working on a presentation for my camera club and will be showcasing how easy it is to create a Zine and using my work as an example. I will be recommending your website for anyone to wants to make their own Zine.

Info for file setup

Paperback book print
file setup information

How to supply your print files
You can supply your files in a way that suits you - as single pages or spreads, individual files for each page, or as a single combined file.
Important - your cover
Your cover is made up of four pages - a front cover, an inside front cover, a back cover, and an inside back cover.
Bleed
We ask for a 3mm bleed on all paperback books. Please do not include any important content within this area.
Format and orientation
You can choose either an A4 (210 x 297 mm) or A5 (148 x 210 mm) format, and a landscape or portrait orientation.
Binding
The binding options available for paperback books are perfect bound or stapled. For books with fewer than 25 pages, we recommend printing as a booklet.
Please note:
These available binding options are entirely dependent upon the number of pages and paper weight selected for your order. This is because there comes a point where the combined paper thickness is too much to effectively staple or stitch together, and will instead need to be held together by adhesive (otherwise known as ‘perfect binding’).

The opposite is true if there are too few pages for perfect binding to work. Our dynamic ordering system is smart enough to know when a limit has been reached, and will automatically switch to the required binding option.

Spine (for Perfect Binding)
If you choose perfect binding you have the option to upload the spine as a separate print file. The spine depth is calculated and displayed in the shopping cart. If you do not upload a print file for your spine it will be left blank.
The spine will also need a 3mm bleed at the top and bottom.
Completing your order
Before you can complete your order, you must make sure all page placeholders have been completed. For example, if you are ordering 32 pages, all 32 boxes must be filled. If you do not have enough content, you must add blank pages.
